View Resource Color Sines Classroom Activity

In this lesson from Math Machines, the class will use an RGB Color Mixer and a graphing calculator to control the color of a single pixel. In addition to learning about color, the students will gain experience using and programming calculators. A participant handout (including worksheet) and facilitator notes are made available for download in DOC file format. A link to a required calculator...

View Resource Star Show Classroom Activity

In this lesson from Math Machines, the class will "plan and conduct a simulated astronomical observing session to photgraph a variety of star types." The instructor will set up several "stars" around the classroom, and students will then set up a telescope location and estimate the altitude and azimuth to photograph each star. A participant handout (including worksheet) and facilitator notes...

View Resource Shrinking Candles, Running Water, Folding Boxes

Created by Jill Stevens of Illuminations: Resources for Teaching Mathematics, this activity allows students to look for functions within a given set of data. After analyzing the data, the student should be able to determine a type of function that best represents the data. The lesson provides graphs from a T-89 graphing calculator, easily allowing students to compare their answers with those...

View Resource Illuminations: Birthday Paradox

Created by Illuminations: Resources for Teaching Mathematics, this lesson plan uses the Birthday Paradox to introduce basic concepts of probability. Students run a Monte Carlo simulation using the TI-83 graphing calculator to generate random dates, and then search for matching pairs. Students also perform a graphical analysis of the birthday-problem function. The site offers insight on: learning...

View Resource Calculator Instructions for Elementary Statistics

Created by Roberta Bloom of DeAnza College, this website provides links to instructions for performing basic statistics such as confidence intervals, hypothesis tests, discrete distributions, linear regression, etc. for TI-83, TI-84, and TI-86 calculators. This is a nice introduction to these statistical methods and additional insight into how to perform these functions on graphing calculators.
